VIV Asia 2023 concluded successfully, as a robust platform for B2B international business. Over three days, the show facilitated face-to-face interactions, networking, knowledge-sharing, and a lively marketplace. Over 47,500 visitors from 112 countries and more than 1,186 exhibitors from 57 countries, representing five continents, travelled to Bangkok, Thailand between 8-10 March 2023. The event maintained its stable attendance and even slightly exceeded the previous edition. Despite the global circumstances and the past three long years of Covid 19 restrictions, the show’s international appeal for the Feed to Food industry remained evident, confirming its significance as a World Expo.
31,544 sqm mega-venue with 1,186 exhibitors and Meat Pro Asia
Three Challenger halls at Thailand’s mega-venue IMPACT, a collective of more than 31,544sqm provided a unique exhibiting space and the co-location with Meat Pro Asia. The animal protein sector responded positively to the partnership between VIV Asia and Meat Pro Asia, the premier trade platform for processing and packaging solution in the meat industry, resulting in high attendance. This achievement represents another significant milestone in the VIV global series of events. “VIV Asia is the first VIV show in 2023 and it represents – and rightfully so – our goal to connect the markets, and enhance industry trade both locally and globally,” stated Birgit Horn, Managing Director of VIV Worldwide, during the event.
A global Feed to Food system reimagined
VIV Asia serves as the primary platform for sector leaders in Asia to showcase not only their extraordinary variety of products, but innovations, knowledge, and services related to animal husbandry and animal nutrition. This year’s innovations spanned a wide range of topics, including safe and effective farming automation tools, ingenious medical and medicinal products, and efficient broiler house control systems.
With a focus on cutting edge know-how, VIV Asia‘s conference program was a major highlight at the event. With over 200 high-level speakers and more than 120 sessions spread over four days, attendees had a unique opportunity to gain insights into the latest innovations and technologies, as well as best practices from leading industry and research experts on a wide range of topics, such as early feeding, feed efficiency or controlling Avian Influenza, maximizing dairy farm margins, improving gut health, sustainable solutions for animal production, and many more.
Most of the sessions were fully booked with very few possibilities of walk-ins finding availability – a fact that showed how important are the sessions presented during VIV Asia to an audience that is keen on learning and following the industry trends.
VIV Asia 2025
Looking ahead, VIV Asia will return 12-14 March 2025, carrying on the tradition of providing a premier platform for the animal protein industry to connect, learn, and innovate. VIV Asia will undoubtedly be another landmark event in the VIV series of events around the world, with a strong commitment to delivering a top-quality trade show and knowledge programs.
The show organizing team, its partners, which included over 60 industry media titles, 45 global industry associations, and the exhibitors are grateful to everyone who came out to support this event in Bangkok.
